The forum seems very new, so I thought I would make a DIY mounts thread. Maybe this could be stickied by an admin.

Here is my DIY x-grip for the GoPro.

DIY Dog Helmet mount

Here is a link to flickr where I have put up pics of my new DIY Dog Helmet and Dog Helmet Camera Mod. Unfortunately, I have to be out of town for a bit, so I have not tried getting my dog, Murph to try it out just yet, but it does look promising, so far. I added a strap to the ear flaps, to help keep the helmet on his head. I am not sure just yet if he may shake the camera to the side or not, but I'll do some tweeking when it comes time to check it out. The weight of a GoPro may be a bit heavy, but I'll play about with it and see. I am anxious to get some dog views with him riding in my sidecar. It cost about $7 bucks to make this project, so far. Just something unique and different. Hoping to get some video made soon though and see who well or how bad this mount idea was.

I was testing the

I was testing the articulating arm that is attached to my bar mount for my GoPro camera. Here are a few clips with the mount. It was very windy on this ride. The mount was not secured as I should have done, but I did a little tweeking in making it secure and it works just great. The camera is very steady on the mount and on the articulating arm attached. The dogs love the ride.

DIY motorcycle bar mount

DIY MODIFICATION:

Here is my bar mount for my motorcycle. They only require basically a Super Clamp, a 1" aluminum tube, a mount for the GoPro (tripod mount or 3M Dual Lock Tape) and the GoPro camera.
This was just a ride in the neighborhood to check out the mount position and function:

Chain link fence mount

I made a mount to put a GoPro camera on a chain link fence to record little league baseball games or any other event that might be inside a chain link fence.

Total cost: ~$2.50 = $0.90 for PVC pipe and tee, $1.30 for tiny bungee cords + tax

Ceiling beam / 2x4 mount

This mount was even cheaper than my chain link fence mount. I used the plate holder that came in the packaging and bought a $1.50 spring clamp to hold the camera to a ceiling beam cross member.

Make sure to clamp it so the clamp isn't in your camera view. It is in these photos before I moved it to the other side.

I was thinking of using a clamp like that but I was thinking of mounting the camera to the end of the clamp handle.
